We stayed in the Domus apartment which was great value. From the moment we arrived, the service was amazing. The lady that checked us in was so helpful, showing us around the apartment, recommending local restaurants and marking things on the map for us. The apartment was beautiful and spacious with a kitchen for cooking. The location was good to get a feel for the non-touristy side of Florence. It was still walking distance to the sites, but just a bit of a hike. Also worth noting is that the apartment was super secure.
